You might not have made the look you wanted however, this is very pretty. The color combos are cool.
Aww thanks! I just felt like I messed it up and wasn’t sure what to do to fix it.
I’m with Kim I think the only “fail” is that the top just isn’t blended as good as you normally do but I love the colors you chose and the bottom looks REALLY stinkin’ pretty! I like it, I think you re-name this post to, I thought it was a fail until my readers proved me wrong! Lol
Thanks! I felt like the bottom looked ok, but the outer V area was off,and yeah the top didn’t look right, and it looked worse after I added the color in the lower crease. And I renamed it, at your request
I actually like it!! btw you have such pretty eyes!
I think it’s cool, too. It’s just a different way of blending colors that what you do.
I, for one, am glad you are posting this. The color choices are excellent together.
Pshaw, this is no fail, it’s what my “rainbow eyes” always look like >_> I don’t even both to blend sometimes.
I was actually wondering if maybe I used the In the Buff as a base all over the eye area, if it would have blended easier? I haven’t done a rainbow eye in a while.
This looks shit-tons better than anything I can do on even my best days, so it’s still a win in my book.
Well I like it, especially the subtle way you used Emerenta to darken the crease without interrupting the pattern on your eyelid. On a seperate note, I was browsing the cosmetics section of my local Walgreens and found that they had bottles Sally Hansen’s Hidden Treasure nail polish in stock. Imagine my surprise hehehe
Oops! I actually used Aromaleigh Frankincense to darken the loewr crease a bit.
YAY for you finding Hidden treasure!
Ah! sorry, I saw the crease looked dark purple and knowing that Emerenta is dark purple but not knowing what color Frankincense is, I saw Emerenta on the list of products and didn’t give it another thought. :>
I think it looks kind of neat and I love the lip color(s) I think I need that Miliani lip gloss : )
Yeah it’s cute!
Just checked my e-mail and noticed you changed the name of the post! LOL that’s awesome!
Hehe, glad ya like the change.
If I’m using pixie epoxy I always have to use a neutral base to get my stuff to blend when I do multiple colors, I love the heck out of that stuff, but it makes it difficult sometimes for real seamless blending
What neutral base do you tend to use?
I like it! I think it’s very pretty and the colors work so well together.
Thanks! It’s definitely not your typical rainbow eye.
I think its beautiful! Phyrra? Fail? Yea right.
I do think I had major fail with blending in crease.
I think it looks funky and cool!!
Thank you Yvonne
I agree – I think it looks great!! We are our own worst critic.
This is entirely true!
I wouldn’t call this a fail at all. You always do so many creative and lovely looks. I like all of the shades you used.
It’s cute — definitely not a fail!! I’m in awe of how many different shades you used, though They’re definitely all necessary (and all look great,) but I’m pretty sure I would have gotten lost in that pile of pigments!
Naw, if you just take your time it’s not too bad
I LOVE this!!! I have always wanted to do a rainbow eye but am so afraid that I would look like a 37-year-old woman trying too hard. However, I am rethinking that after seeing this on your lovely eyes. I am especially enraptured with the lower lid ~ the yellow, purple & pink with the blue liner is GENIUS!!! This look was an epic win!
I also love it! I also really appreciate it that you include one or more pictures of your whole face, too. It just gives me a better impression of how the eyes look in relation to the entire face.
I don’t mean to criticize bloggers who only want to post close-up pictures of their eyes. Since I don’t have a blog, and therefore don’t post ANY pictures of myself (close up or full face) I would never judge.
But since you don’t mind doing it, I will say it helps me learn more.
This is not a fail. Looks great, I like the way you kind of angled the shadow instead of it going straight up and down.
I think the top lid is kind of unbalanced- (Needs more blending, maybe?)
Apart from that it’s really pretty!
